Multifaceted artist Macey Estes defies genres and bends your musical bias. Often compared to R&B artists like Kehlani, she colors outside the typical lines of both pop and R&B, creating a sultry package that's vulnerable yet current.
Macey knew she wanted to make music from the second she got onto the stage in her hometown of Nashville, Tennessee. Though she moved around and grew up living on both sides of the Atlantic, she pursued music wherever she was. As an 18-year-old high school senior, she auditioned for “The Voice,” and even though she didn’t make it to the next round, her idol Christina Aguilera was quoted on the show saying “Macey has a really cool voice.”
The natural next step for this passionate musician was to learn how to make it. Macey went on to earn a bachelor’s degree in music production at the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music, where she befriended her now frequent collaborator/fellow producer. During her years at IU Macey also befriended her now manager and publicist, and her musical finesse multiplied when she landed an internship in Los Angeles with notable music industry executives in 2017. Macey and her team collectively and completely coincidentally moved to LA in 2018 and helped Macey put out her first three singles in late 2018-2019 - ‘Crucify Me,’ ‘Call It Fate,’ and ‘Enemy’ respectively - as she was also performing at venues throughout LA such as the Hotel Café and Peppermint Club.
Macey and her team were ready to build on the momentum she was riding into 2020 with ... oblivious to what the year would have in store for us all. Macey wore her heart on her sleeve while writing and creating her debut EP Save Yourself as she touched on subjects of mental health, heartbreak, and self-worth. These songs embody who Macey is as a lover, a fighter, and an all nighter, and this EP is a promise to continue to fight for love. As a proud member of the LGBTQIA+ community, Macey is passionate about advocating for equality and acceptance. Believing that everything happens for a reason, she is proud to share this project and hopes that it will help inspire others to keep following your dreams no matter how many hurdles stand in your way.
Influenced by artists like Jessie Reyez, Njomza, Alessia Cara and H.E.R., you can always expect Macey will bring honesty, attitude, and a funky-fresh sound. With more stories to tell, the will to keep creating and support from friends and fans ... this is just the beginning for Macey Estes.
Save Yourself, the debut EP by Macey Estes, is now available everywhere.
